KRAC 88.1, the home of...

Girls were a mystery to me.

I didn't know how to smell

or what to say to them

or how to dress for them.

Did girls want a guy

with boxers or tidy whities?

I stuck to the tidies

for comfort.

I mean my body was still changing, and...

my testicles wouldn't drop like

the other guys in gym class.

Then I discovered Lionel.

He was cool and knew things

about women, secret things.

Lionel said things like:

"You mean more to me

than words can ever say" and...

and "you are the rain that makes my life

this foolish game."

I studied him.

He became my crash course

in getting laid.


I'm bringing sexy back.

KRAC 88.1.

All right, hey, let's welcome

to the studio live this morning

our local talent best-selling author,

Henry McCarthy.

Let's talk about your book

How Lionel Got Me Laid.

Folks, I've got to tell you this is a serious

look at high school heartbreak here.

Hey, how about that girl

in your book, Lauren?

The cheerleader.

Was she a real heartbreaker?

You can't name names.

Think she... think she

read the book?

I would be surprised.



Thanks a lot, Henry.

Listen, we'll be right back with a pause here

for station identification.

KRAC, K-rock in the morning.

Be right back with John-John.

You know who it is.

I think I'll have

the t-bone steak and eggs, well.

That's it.

And the strawberry pancakes.

Just a short order.

And no whipped cream.

Light on the whipped cream.

That it?


No, hold on.

I'll be back soon.

I'm not gonna eat all of it,


Is that Mike Miller?

Mm-hmm. It is.

I don't think he recognized us.

Oh, he knew who you were.

He's been here for 2 years.

And Stephanie Reid works

at Bank of America.

and Josh Williams works

at the Duffy's Dry Cleaners.

Over on main?
